LANE — Residents in this Jerauld County community will decide Feb. 8 whether to dissolve the town.
Margaret Schmidt, 83, has lived in Lane for 30 years. She believes the taxes are too high and residents don’t get enough services for what they pay. She has private water, sewer and electrical service.
Schmidt forks over $1,200 in property taxes annually and claims that more than half of the taxes pay the town board’s and finance officer’s wages.
